Yakuza Irezumi by ~kyodai showcases a massive pixel piece that's sure to please your tastes. To boot, it's even wallpaper sized! (And when was the last time you had a pixel wallpaper, hmm?) In the grand scheme of things -- with Japanese symbols and attractive flowers galore -- this is one of the more prettiest pieces that have come out of our pixel art gallery.

just wow, that's all I can say. it's absolutly breath taking! I do minor pixel art, but works like this make me wonder if I'll ever be that good, it must have taken forever to do and I'm sure the number of colors you used is quite high.

the massive patient you have for doing this ..well a nose -bleding piece...shows a part of you and ur world..
the details..the shadows..all mixed together in harmony ..it was hard to believe it was a work made pixel by pixel..wonder the years it took to you make this
intrincate pieces are nothing in comparison of urs and truly the aprecciation goes for your hands..and ur mind
waves to you god of pixels..i wish i can pixel some serious stuff very soon!
